It is difficult to find much information on the pollination of specific aroid species, unless it is a species for which numerous hybrids have been made. However, with that said, if you find pollen being shed at the same time as the stigmas are receptive, you could try using a small brush to apply pollen to the stigmas. Then it becomes a question of whether this species is self fertile; some plants can accept their own pollen, others cannot.

My Anthurium schlechtendalii  has decided to bloom.  I?m familiar with the basic layout of the aroid inflorescence. My question is more about the shedding of the pollen and the receptivity of the ovary?s style. The garden arums I have (Arisaema, Arum and Pinellia), have no problem setting full heads of seed.  Even the Anthuriums at the local conservatory (including the parent of my plant) are often full of berries in various stages of maturity. My plant has bloomed before, but no berries developed.  I?ve seen spadices with pollen shedding and the receptivity of the ovary evidenced by a small drop of liquid.  Is it a matter of bad timing of the plant or is there some way I could help it along?
